Luis Alberto's story
Luis is a 50 year-old resident of a neighborhood in the city of Barranquilla where he works in his carpentry workshop. This trade he learned by observing the work of a carpenter who gave him the opportunity to participate in the production process: cutting, pasting, polishing, assembling and painting. When he felt he was fully qualified to practice the profession, he used his own savings earned from previous jobs and started his own workshop that offers the services of design and development of bedroom sets, closet, room furniture, doors and others. His charges his clients in cash or according to the contract that he has made with his client. Since his capital is enough to meet the coverage of orders, he is implementing his first credikiva, through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, for the purchase of raw materials, a compressor and a cutter. This investment aims to improve delivery times and thus portfolio turnover. Luis is the father of an 18 year old son whom he wants to continue to offer a good education for. His future goal is to build a two-story house, so that the lower half will function as his workshop.
